Frank H. Johnston, Serenity, Lake of the Woods, 1922. Collection of the Winnipeg Art Gallery. L-102
Frank Johnston (1888–1949) exhibits over 300 works, about a dozen of which are of Manitoba subjects.
The Gallery purchases its second acquisition in February, a tempera painting by Johnston entitled Hills of Batchawana. However, in January 1924, this work would be returned to Johnston, along with a payment of $100, in return for Serenity, Lake of the Woods, one of Johnston’s undeniable masterpieces.
